 Predicted Super Eagles Starting Line-up For Friendly Against Brazil
Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr will attempt beating Brazil with an African team since Cameroon did so 1-0 in the 2003 Confederations Cup when both sides do battle in Singapore on Sunday.

But which players are at his disposal for the prestige clash in Kallang?
brings readers the most probable starting XI the Franco-German could deploy thus,

In between the sticks is most likely to be Omonia Nicosia's Francis Uzoho who gets the nod to start his third successive game for the team.

The youngster was in action in the 2-2 draw last month and should be doing everything to tie down his spot particularly after the invitation of Fortuna Dusseldorf's Maduka Okoye.

The defensive department could have a central pairing of Udinese's William Troost-Ekong who might be handed the captaincy for this one alongside West Brom's Semi Ajayi while Bursaspor's Abdullahi Shehu, missing from the Ukraine game comes back into the side to take his spot on the right flank of the defence. Paderborn's Jamilu Collins will thus, tuck in on the left.

Leicester City's ace, Wilfred Ndidi also makes a return to action, forming the base of the midfield alongside Stoke City's Oghenekaro Etebo.

With some uncertainties surrounding the fitness of Rangers man, Joe Aribo for this cracker, we might get to see Granada's Ramon Azeez straight from the off as one of the furthest midfielders while another option is the use of PAOK's Anderson Esiti.

In attack, Everton's Alex Iwobi and Villarreal's Samuel Chukwueze will start on the left and right flanks respectively while Lille's Victor Osimhen spearheads it.

Nigeria's probable starting XI vs Brazil: Uzoho, Troost-Ekong, Ajayi, Collins, Shehu, Etebo, Ndidi, Ramon Azeez, Iwobi, Chukwueze, Osimhen.
